BeBop dress and Julie's Closet cardigan, Ross
belt, from dress
SPRING BREAK IS COMING. SPRING BREAK IS COMING. SPRING BREAK IS COMING. (Insert excited squeal here - and if you met me in person, you'd realize I'm not even the squealy type). Yeah, don't tell my students, but I think I'm much more excited than they are about the prospect of one glorious week away from school! Well, I'm equal parts excited and equal parts tired. Based on experience, the exhaustion will hit about noon Saturday and I'll spend a good part of the day napping.
I didn't realize it at the time, but this outfit is an inadvertent walking advertisement for Ross. It may also be a fashion don't - when you're 36, is it a bad idea to wear two items from the juniors department together? Admittedly, this dress is a bit on the short side for work -- I feel more comfortable when my hemline is closer to my knee vs. mid-thigh -- but I put my trusty bike shorts underneath.
I've always liked this cardigan but been unsure how to style it, and this is my favorite way to wear it so far. I've struggled with figuring out how to wear a belt over a cardigan without looking stumpy and thick-waisted, but on a whim I tried it while taking pictures and I rather like the look.
How would you style this cardigan? I'd love to wear it more often!
